Crown Colour Influences A/W 2015

Crown have released their colour influences for A/W 2015 and I have to say, i’m a huge fan of the three very distinctive colour palettes. It’s not surprising I already have several of these paint colours as testers from my own projects and other client’s. Business and pleasure testers.

Let’s have a look-see.

Faded Simplicity 

Crown Faded Simplicity Colour Chart

“As its name suggests, this trend is all about a simple form. The palette is pared down on colour but rich in texture. Chalky matt, rough surfaces are beautifully combined with light reflective finishes and metal embellishments.” Justyna Korczynska – Crown Design Studio

Crown Faded Simplicity

“Muted neutral tones fade and blend into each other to create a light and natural palette. The bringing together of opposites – rough edges complement jewelled embellishments. Metallic finishes work next to chalky matt.”


Crown Faded Stitch Colour Chart

“An appreciation of past skills and crafts. A synthesis
of unexpected hues in modern patchworks and bold coloured weave. Bringing together the best of old and new offset by natural architecture and materials.”

“Some of the most modern and prolific furniture and textile designers take inspiration from skills like basketware and patchwork for their designs – looking at the myriad ways of layering and weaving tone and texture together for inspiration. For this reason I find Stitch exciting and interesting as a starting point for putting together a palette that is thought provoking and has real depth and strength.” Judy Smith – Crown Colour Consultant


Crown Retrospective Colour Chart

“I really love the way this palette of colours conjures up memories of interior design from the Mid Century. Elegant blues contrast effortlessly with rich mustard balanced perfectly with soft grey.” Neville Knott – Crown Colour Consultant

Crown Retrospective

“Echoes of Mid-Century modern design and architecture influence a very strong and effortlessly stylish colour palette. Simplicity of shape and colour is emphasised to create a modern take on a prolific design era.”

Thoughts? The colour charts are a great resource. Makes selecting several colours for a room a complete doddle. You really can’t go wrong. I think Retrospective is my personal favourite as i’m slightly obsessed with “Genuine”. That paired with a bit of “Old Gold” and i’m sold.



  1. We love the “Faded Simplicity ” colour pallet, it fits perfect for an industrial look and we really like “Retrospective” pallet of colours too, very nostalgic.
